A servant leader at heart, she loves volunteering, cooking, the outdoors and anything that can make her laugh. She choses to make every day a completely new experience, and as learner,she revels in trying something new every day. 

She had a car accident almost 4 years ago, which she came out of unharmed. "I distinctly remember hearing the loud crash, and the breaking of glass everywhere but something said hold on to the steering wheel tightly. I closed my eyes, and all I saw was white. From that day, I knew I had encountered God, and I would never be the same again. I chose right then and there to live my life intentionally, and to only give life to the things of God. I have stumbled along the way, but I have seen How Great the Lord is. I am blossoming each day, and as I surrender a little more of myself, I feel parts of myself expanding and being filled with His Peace and Joy."
